Hollywood Asteroids (work in progress)

Postby jalih » Tue Jan 06, 2015 8:54 pm

Hi all,

I decided to write a simple Asteroids game in Hollywood using my framework as an example for others to learn. Any volunteers for helping me to write tutorial?

The game will feature all the basic elements of a full game when it's ready and I already have some code ready for really fast game prototyping.

Here are runnable binaries for most platforms as a teaser.

Have to say, I surely didnt expect that to look so good from your description. Pretty good asteroids clone actually.

If i can figure out how your framework actualyl works, i might be willing to help with writing that tutorial. But not a promise.

Oops, I forgot to put any playing instructions...

- Use left and right arrow keys to rotate the ship.
- Use up arrow key to thrust the ship forward.
- Use left control key to shoot and blast those asteroids in pieces.

- Use p key to pause the game.
- Use spacebar for hyperspace jump (teleports to random location).

More updates...

- Use left shift key to activate shield. Shield lasts 1.5 seconds or when the left shift key is pressed again. You cannot control or fire the ship when shield is active.

- Meteors now speed up based on the level.

- You can get extra life on every 10 000 points (max lives limited to 8).

Please download and test.
